Despite the early struggles, San Antonio FC has seen success at Toyota Field this year with a 3-1-3 record and are 21-5-14 at their home confines since 2017. The two clubs have split results the prior two years in Texas, with 1868 FC gathering a 2-0 win last year and San Antonio FC taking a 4-0 victory in 2017.
